Interacting with the visualisations

Each visualisation has a default view, for example it will show a selected publisher/supplier/service and year. You can change these by using the options to the right of the image. The options available depend on what is being visualised, and also which publishers/suppliers/services we have collected data from for your institution.

Where you are comparing years or trends, you can choose which years are displayed by checking and unchecking the boxes on the right, and most visualisations allow you to easily change between the publishers/suppliers/services shown. Some visualisations have the option to change the number of titles or publishers/suppliers/services displayed.

Hovering your mouse pointer over a data point on the visualisation will show you more detail about that data point. For some visualisations you can toggle the figures on and off.

The 'Reset visualisation' button at the top left will restore the visualisation to its initial state.

Sharing the visualisations

In some visuals you can export the image by clicking on 'Export as PNG'. This will open the image in a separate tab where you can right-click and save or copy the image. Alternatively, you can use a screen grab tool to capture all or part of the image.

All the visualisations are based on the available data within JUSP. To view the underlying data you will need to run the associated reports in JUSP.
